OBJECTIVE To evaluate the hypoglycemic effect of Brassica juncea (seeds) on streptozotocin induced diabetic male albino rats. METHODS Hypoglycemic activity of Brassica juncea (seeds) aqueous extract at a dose of 250, 350 and 450 mg/kg body weight was evaluated. Adult male Swiss albino rats of six numbers in each group was undertaken for study and(More)
Aqueous extract of shade dried leaves of Euphorbia hirta (L) was used for the synthesis of silver (Ag) nanoparticles. UV-visible spectroscopy studies were carried out to assess the formation Ag nanoparticles. Scanning Electron Microscopic (SEM) was used to characterize the Ag nanoparticles. SEM image divulges that silver nanoparticles are quite(More)
Cigarette smoke (CS) contains free radicals that are considered to be a major group of carcinogens. Wistar mice were exposed to cigarette smoke for 16 weeks, 2cigarettes for 15 min/ twice daily, 6 days/wk. The control animals (C) inhaled clean room air. Biochemical markers in blood and lung tissues were analyzed. There was gradual increase in the lipid(More)
To investigate the absorption and the inhibition of glucose by the aqueous seed extracts of Trigonella foenum gracum. The small intestine of all animals were removed, washed with 0.9% (w/v) normal saline and intestinal segments were everted the empty sac was filled with 0.5 ml of the KHB buffer and placed in a stoppered conical flask with 5 ml of the buffer(More)
